[Film] The Triplets of Belleville

Weird is the best description for this French animation. Quirky doesn't even cut it. It is the strangest animation I've ever seen. The style is unusual, but even more unusual is its nonsensical story. Nothing makes sense in this movie, and I guess nothing has to since it is supposed to be artsy and different. I can appreciate its weirdness for weirdness's sake, but I had a hard time getting drawn in to the story. It's just... too bizarre.

The entire movie is basically mute, with the characters speaking no more than two words in total and the constant unintelligible French running on the background. I thought it was kind of neat as the quirkiness of the characters and the strangeness of the situation are conveyed vividly without the help of dialogue. However, the story is just too bizarre for my taste. The soundtrack was cool though and the only song in the movie was rather catchy. The characters are memorable because they are nothing like what you'd expect, especially The Triplets. They are the weirdest bunch by far. Also beware of frogs.
